Sophisticated special effects are now incredibly easy! Eye Candy 3.0 is a collection of 21 timesaving filters for use with Photoshop and other graphics programs. The set includes spectacular effects like Fire, Smoke and Perspective Shadow, as well as frequently used production effects like Cutout, Carve, Drop Shadow, Inner Bevel and Motion Trail.

  • Choose From Over 200 Presets or Save Your Own Settings. The filters in Eye Candy each come with at least 10 presets to help you quickly get acquainted with what each filter can do. That's over 200 effects at your disposal from the moment you install.
  • Tight Integration with Photoshop. Eye Candy takes special advantage of Photoshop's most advanced features.
  • All 21 filters are fully scriptable with the Actions feature in Photoshop 4 and 5, making complex or frequent effects easy to automate.
